Do you like to dance?
We’re kicking off our first-ever film screening at the Spa Little Theater, with a special film and dance event. Tomorrow night (Thursday), SPAC is hosting a really wonderful Argentinian dance group – Che Malambo. It is an original, traditional type of percussive dance and a wonder to watch. SPAC has also invited a group of Argentine polo players who are here to play polo to display their horses and let folks get to know them. Meanwhile, in the Hall of Springs, they’ll be serving grilled Argentine specialties (Asado). It will be a great night and we hope you can go.
On Saturday, we’ll continue the exploration of Argentine culture with another special event and a special film: Un Noche de Tango: Un Tango Mas (Our Last Tango)
Maria Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes were lovers, dance partners,and artists who did the most to take tango from the streets of Buenos Aires to Broadway and beyond. They also endured as much backstage drama as any friction-fueled rock band, dancing together for years after they were divorced and hardly speaking to each other. Listening to their story mostly from the side of the spurned wife and fleshing out her memories with transporting reenactments, Our Last Tango balances between a studious fascination with Tango history and an embrace of the passions it stokes.
The film is wonderful, but we’re going to dance too. Are you an experienced Tango dancer? You’ll love this event. Interested, but don’t know how? No problem. Tango Fusion Dance Company is partnering with us, for a night of Dance, Film, Food, and Fun.
The event starts at 6:30 with Food and Drink, Tango lessons (for beginners up to people who need a little refresher. And of course, if you’re an experience dancer, join in and provide inspiration!)
At 7:15, Tango Fusion will share some of the history of Tango, and then we’ll watch the film.
At 9 pm, the dancing starts, with more food, desserts, and drink.
Tickets are $15 (advance purchase), or $20 at the door. Use our online store to purchase advance tickets.
